Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (ITAMP)
The Institute for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics was
established in 1988 to attract and encourage talented graduate students
to enter this field of research, which emphasizes theoretical study of
fundamental questions in atomic and molecular physics. ITAMP hosts many
visitors, both long- and short-term, and conducts numerous conferences
and workshops annually.
Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC)
The Institute for Theory and Computation, also hosted by the CfA, is
dedicated to research in high-end astrophysical computing. One of the
primary objectives is to integrate conceptual theory
with computational modeling. The ITC consists of members of the Harvard
Department of Astronomy, Smithsonian astrophysicists, postdoctoral
researchers, graduate students, and associates at other institutions.
Center for X-ray Technology (CXT)
The Center for X-ray Technology, established in 2003 as a collaborative
effort with other institutions, promotes the development of detectors
and optics leading to space telescope applications, including X-ray
interferometers. New technology for future high-energy astrophysics
missions, with substantial increases in aperture, energy resolution,
energy coverage, and angular resolution, is the goal of this research.
